> The user experience initiative seems like a great idea. I wonder what the use case is for the ux.scribus.net. If it is intended to be a place to share information and co-develop plans perhaps that can be accommodated as a separate section in the wiki with ux.scribus.net url pointing to it in a way docs.scribus.net now points to a wiki section. I can set up a new "UX" namespace and create a group that contributors to this project will be members of if really necessary. I am not even sure any access controls are needed as we can revert bad edits in the wiki easily. Please elaborate on the ux.s.n usage if you'd be so kind. Will any other infrastructure be needed beyond a collaborative web space and a source repository? It seems to me that a front page, a wiki "UX" namespace, a git repository, and the scribus-dev mailing list are the necessary and sufficient components.
For now it should just be a redirect to http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Category:User_interface or a
new Category. I'd make User Interface a sub category of UX though if the redirect points to UX.
Peter, please create ux.scribus.net and point it to the main webserver and we can redirect local on
the server as necessary.
